Holiday Hours: Labor Day
11:30AM / Thursday, September 03, 2020

Labor Day is being celebrated Monday, Sept. 7. Labor Day was established as a federal holiday in 1971 by Congress and is held on the first Monday of September. Read a history of Labor Day here.

The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on Tuesday, Sept. 5, 1882, in New York City, in accordance with the plans of the Central Labor Union. The union encouraged the development of a workingman's holiday and a number of states began setting a day aside. Parades and picnics or similar events were not uncommon in its early days; it is now seen as part of the last three-day weekend of the summer prior to the start of school in many localities.

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
02:44AM / Thursday, September 03, 2020
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The School Committee on Tuesday voted to move football and soccer to the so-called "Fall II" and to allow golf and cross country to go ahead with precautions.    The Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association last week released final guides for fall high school sports in light of the novel coronavirus pandemic. The concept of a Fall II had been approved earlier for football and other high contact sports to be played  between February and April.   "It would basically run dates to be determined but between the winter, and the spring season so for our district probably mid-March to the end of April," said Athletic

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff

Markey, Neal Win Democratic Primaries
Staff Reports,
10:13PM / Tuesday, September 01, 2020

Congressman Neal's win in the primary means he will serve another term since there is no challenger in the general election.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — U.S. Sen. Edward Markey and U.S. Rep. Richard Neal have won their primaries by large margins against U.S. Rep. Joseph Kennedy III and Holyoke Mayor Alex Morse, respectively.   The progressive senator had been down in the polls earlier this summer and there had been speculation the storied Kennedy name would aid in putting the 4th Mass District representative into the Senate chamber.    Each racked up a long list of endorsements, with the younger Kennedy getting a late boost from Speaker of the House Nancy

10:54AM / Tuesday, September 01, 2020

Program," Ostroskey said.   With COVID-19 related issues, fewer students will be

Labor Day is almost here. Of course, this year, the holiday may have a different impact, given the employment-related stress and disruptions stemming from the coronavirus. Yet, it's good to recognize the value of work and its importance in achieving your life's goals. But if you're going to retire comfortably and reach your other financial objectives, you also need to invest – and your investments need to work as hard as you do.   To help make this happen, you need to know why you're investing in the first place.
